amid throngs of slowshoers and in some really thick fog, we made our way to the first peak on seymour. after some beacon practice and digging a quick pit, the clouds started to open up a bit.
Lee shreds the Seymour gnar with ease:
Tyler pinning it first run on his new splitboard:
next we skinned a bit further out to explore some interesting un-tracked NE aspects. here we are waiting for a break in the clouds. you don't want to drop down here in poor viz … nasty big cliffs all around.
Tyler drops in:
contemplating line selection under a snow ghost, can't really go too wrong with freshy everywhere:
Lee finding the Seymour pow surprisingly good:
I had a hard time taking photos of Tyler as he moved so damn fast, so here's another shot of Lee rippin':
as we put our skins on and started the climb back up, the clouds opened up even more making for some cool lighting:
Lee putting in a gnarly ass skin track … yeah it's steep:
even snowboarders have to 2 plank it to get around the bc. Tyler doing awesome for his first time on 2 planks ever:
Lee putting in a brutal pace uphill, borderline death march I might say. these photos were excuses for rest breaks:
just as we got back on top of the ridge we were treated to some amazing sunset colors on the mountains to the east:
watching the sun set:
the view from first peak before we skied out in the twilight:
